England news: Gareth Southgate was persuaded to not quit before World Cup amid pressure | Football | Sport


Southgate eventually decided against making a public declaration as it could have created ‘an excessive amount of noise’ about his successor, with the likes of Thomas Tuchel, Mauricio Pochettino and Eddie Howe all linked with the post even after the tournament.

England reached the quarter-finals before an agonising 2-1 defeat to France, who reached the ultimate, after Harry Kane missed an important penalty at Al Bayt Stadium.

Multiple reports suggest Southgate will announce his decision to the FA to proceed working in his role for the foreseeable future before Christmas, as England look to place their last-eight exit behind them and deal with Euro 2024, which takes place in Germany in only 18 months’ time.

And it underlines that the previous Under-21 boss will probably be pleased that he decided not to vow to step down after opting to hold on the role he has held since 2016.
